The financing, amounting to nearly €110 million, will enable the Albioma Group to optimise the financing of its existing projects and to extend the maturity of the current debt while securing the future financing of projects won under recent invitations to tender launched by the French Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission de Régulation de l'Énergie – CRE) or under feed-in tariffs.
This innovative financing, of a portfolio combining several distinct projects, secures the Group's growth over the next few years in the photovoltaic business in the Indian Ocean region under very attractive conditions.
The operation is carried out with Caisse d'Épargne CEPAC as lead arranger. Bpifrance and BRED took part in the transaction. Natixis is the only hedging bank for the transaction.
Albioma is the leading generator of photovoltaic power in Overseas France where it develops and operates innovative projects with integrated storage capabilities. Recently, the Group announced the construction of 51 photovoltaic installations on the roofs of the SHLMR (low-income housing rental company on Reunion Island), with a total capacity of 4.8 MWp.
Next on the agenda: Annual General Meeting of shareholders at 3 pm on 30 May 2018 in the auditorium of the Capital 8 Conference Centre, 32 rue de Monceau, 75008 Paris.
